This guy actually believes people thought he was straight.
A few weeks back an old friend of mine came to visit me. Marnie and I hadn’t seen one another in 19 years. The last time we saw each other, we were teenagers. I was not out as a gay man back then. I’m 39 years old now and I came out at 22 years old. I asked her if she knew I was gay when we were in high school. She said yes. She said that if I had come out to her in high school she would have said, “Everybody knows and nobody cares.” I was struck by how profound her statement was. It’s the truth. Even today. And guess what? It’s the truth about you. Since your first days in the public eye in NSync, everyone has known you were gay (and not just because you have perfectly sculpted eyebrows). I was bartending at a gay dance club during the height of your popularity and everyone referred to you as “the gay one” when talking about NSync.
I don’t want to take anything away from your coming out. It’s a rite of passage for all gay people and it’s an important step we make in the realization of who we are. Even though your coming out was greeted with rolling eyes by many gay men. But like Marnie said, “Everybody knows and nobody cares.” It’s time to stop riding your “Coming Out Wave” and bring something to the table. I honestly saw your coming out as a publicity stunt. It’s certainly the only reason you’ve gotten any press at all. Your proclaiming you are gay was about as desperate as Sen. Larry Craig proclaiming he's not gay.
I know a lot of talented writers who deserve to be published and you are not one of them. I have no idea how you landed a book deal or who actually wrote your book, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t you. I do know that most of your book signings have had dismal turnouts.
I just read online that you were bragging about marrying a female friend in Vegas to get free drinks. What an obvious desperate attempt at getting some press. And since when does a multi-millionaire need free drinks? The reason no one gave you free drinks was because they probably knew that you were gay and your marriage was a joke. I also read that you say the reason you can’t get any acting jobs is because you’re gay. I think it may be more due to your lack of talent as an actor. Maybe they’re telling you it’s because you’re gay to spare your feelings.
Yesterday, you were quoted with saying that at one time you thought different members of the band were gay. There are so many reasons why that is wrong to do. First of all, you know they’re not gay, so why even bother mentioning it? Secondly, what if one of them were gay and still in the closet? It must suck to watch Justin’s career soar, but taking passive/aggressive digs at him makes you look really desperate. As a matter of fact, a lot of what you’re doing now reeks of desperation.
Now you’re in “Hairspray” on Broadway. That, my friend, is not an indication of your talent. That is nothing more than an attempt by the producers to fill seats and sell tickets. Just look at the no-talent pop stars that have populated so many other Broadway shows. Seriously, dude, you’re not playing the lead in a play by Eugene O’Neill or Tennessee Williams. You’re playing a cheesy secondary character in a mediocre musical based on a great John Waters movie. You might as well be playing “Doodie” in “Grease.”
So this brings to mind the question: What is your talent? It’s not singing, as you’re average at best when it comes to that. It’s not dancing, I’ve seen enough NSync videos to know that. It’s not acting, as you proved in a bad movie and are now proving 6 nights a week on Broadway. So far, your talent seems to be “being gay.” You’re a professional gay man. It’s the only reason you’re getting any magazine covers and it’s definitely the only reason you got a book deal. And seriously, “Out of Sync” was the best title you could come up with?
I actually heard you refer to yourself as a role model for young gay men. Really? And what exactly are you teaching them? How to profit from “coming out”? You want to be a role model then you should give people a reason to look up to you. Being gay isn’t reason enough. There was nothing brave about your coming out. You had no career to ruin and you really had nothing at stake. Remember, everybody knew and nobody cared. I hope you saved all the money you made in the boy band because your gay wave is about to dry up. Unless you’re content to play minor roles in cheesy musicals, you’re pretty much done.
How about you just remain content with your millions of dollars and enjoy your life and stop using your “gayness” to stay in the public eye? Your being gay is already old news, but soon enough it’s not going to news at all. Then what will you do to get your name back in the news? It will be nice when your “coming out wave” dries up. Then the rest of us gay men can stop having to watch you wearing your gayness like a merit badge. You’re gay. I get it. I’m gay, too. But really Lance, get over it.
Everybody knows and nobody cares.
PS: You've officially gone from desperate to pathetic. Now you've gotten your name in the news yet AGAIN by admitting you lied about getting married in Vegas. Apparently, you and your fag hag just ran around different clubs saying "We just got married!" trying to get free drinks. Again, you're rich, so what's the point? And dude, I'm sorry, you are so obviously gay that you'd have to be a total mute to not notice. Seriously, get off your "coming out wave" and please disappear and make room for someone with at least a little discernible talent.
